Alan McGee Talks Creation Documentary 'Upside Down' and Oasis
Misrepresented? Possibly. Machiavellian? Potentially. Maverick? Certainly. Alan McGee, former label boss of the hugely influential Creation Records, has been called all of the above and worse. Not that he gives a fuck. During the 80’s he propelled two musically inspired misanthropic brothers into the public consciousness in the form of The Jesus and Mary Chain. And just to show it wasn’t a fluke he did it again a decade later with the Gallaghers, when he signed Oasis. Throw Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub and a host of others into the already heady mix of bedlam and breakdowns and you have one hell of a story.
‘Upside Down’, premiering at next months London Film Festival charts it all; the deals, drugs and disenchantment of Creations unprecedented 15 year history. In an exclusive interview about Danny O'Connor's film Clash spoke to an amiable, amusing and always provacative Mr McGee.
In similar sort of terms we run an independent magazine and we’ve done everything the way we thought we should do it and not necessarily the way that other people do it.I think the music business now is incredibly corporate. I’ll be honest,I’ve lost interest in music now really. The only things that interest me are Noel Gallagher and Glasgvegas, if you’re talking about current music. The demos of Noels new record are fucking amazing and James Allan I think is an incredible talent. And I’m interested in Liam’s new band and hear what he’s doing. They could maybe come up with something amazing. Who knows?
